‘He wanted to use my art for free’: Manager throws a fit when he learns overworked artist quit their job and took their art with them

Being an artist is not an easy profession, and even less so these days. Every day artists fight what seems like a never-ending fight for their rights and their art so that it will not be used in a way that hurts them or their livelihood. They always have to be extremely cautious with how, when, and where they expose their art to other people. Like this artist on Reddit, who shared their experience with volunteering their art at a college club. The artist told Reddit about the entitled club pres…

'The customer is always right—I am the customer!': Entitled customer demands manager drop everything and rearrange store to her liking

'The customer is always right—I am the customer!': Entitled customer demands manager drop everything and rearrange store to her liking

Two basic rules are taught to us when we work in customer service. First of all, we should never presume that consumers will read the small print at the bottom of our signage. The second universal guideline is to never, ever concede that you are correct and the client is mistaken. The story below is an account of a frustrated arts and crafts store manager. OP has been managing the store for a while, and quite frankly, presumably has encountered an endless amount of difficult customers. However,…

 'Chop-chop? Yes ma'am!': Karen shuts down team of employees attempting to correct faulty product

'Chop-chop? Yes ma'am!': Karen shuts down team of employees attempting to correct faulty product

We have likely dealt with a Karen at some point in our lives, particularly if we have extensive customer service experience. But what matters is how we deal with the wild Karen. Karens are here to stay, whether we like it or not, as they existed before the dawn of time and will probably exist for decades to come. If you look past their various nicknames over the years, Karens are just the same old entitled personality we love to hate. Nothing particularly unique or innovative about them. The st…

'I demanded a partial refund and they refused': Tattoo artist tattoos initials onto unsuspecting person

Tattoos are so personal to the individual getting their skin adorned. Everyone knows that tattoos last forever, but it's a hard concept to fathom until you actually get the tattoo. Depending on where you get it, you'll either 1) look at it every day, so you'd better love it! or 2) never look at it if it's on your back or legs, and you'll kind of forget you have it at times. Regardless, you do have that art work forever, and even if you can't see it, other people probably can. Along with your ha…

Artists: Did you ever have a bad art-school critique that really set you back, knocked you off your pins? What was it? Keep it short; don't exaggerate. Often, it can be the least thing. Have you ever made a "revenge" work of art? What was it?

'I...was told “oh but you know only people with talent get in right…?"': 30+ Artists share the harshest critiques they've ever heard

Everyone's a critic, including the very teachers who are supposed to guide students along their path to success.

Often, it can be the least thing. Have you ever made a “rev…

20 People who declared: 'Chia seed ALL the things!'

Ch-ch-ch-chia! These plants are usually so easy to grow that there's an entire brand built around making chia pets. Chia pets usually come with a fun pottery planter in the shape of a person ( Bob Ross seems incredibly popular) or a pop culture icon (looking at you, Groot). Even though it should be as easy as spritzing your chia seeds and waiting for them to sprout, not everyone can handle the task , and their chia pets don't turn out like the photo on the box. However, there's a new trend late…
